ABOUT THE WEBINAR

Mobile technology has become the preferred method for connecting to the
Internet, especially for busy library patrons, faculty, researchers, and
students. To meet this need, many publishers are adding mobile options to
their resources, either through an app, site optimization or other
platforms. How are libraries managing the various options now available for
their users? How are librarians keeping up with this modern trend and what
skills are necessary to deliver enhanced user services? Join NISO for the
October 9 webinar on Knowledge in Your Pocket: Mobile Technology and
Libraries to learn about these issues and more.

Terry Ballard, Special Projects Librarian at the College of New Rochelle
Terry will discuss steps such as choosing a vendor, setting up the catalog
search, promoting the product to the campus community, deciding which added
pages to include and to leave behind, and evaluating usage.

. Using Mobile Technology for Assessment, Data Visualization, and
Advocacy – Rachel Besara, Assistant Librarian, Strozier Library, Florida
State University, Tallahassee, Florida
Learn about the different types of apps you can use in library assessment.
Get ideas on tools you can use to visualize your data for discovery or
storytelling, and find out how to advocate for your library using your
assessment results and mobile applications.

at Penn Libraries – Anne K. Seymour, Associate Director, Biomedical Library,
University of Pennsylvania

Amigos Library Services Presents Online Conference – Reference @ Your Library

Amigos Library Services will present a one day online conference “Reference @ Your Library <http://referenceonline.amigos.org/> ” on August 31. The conference includes sessions focusing on how mobile technology (may) impact reference, embedding reference librarians in online classes, and determining whether technology is a burden or a blessing.

“This conference is entirely online, which makes it an affordable alternative for many librarians to participate in a time where many library budgets continue to shrink,” says Laura Kimberly, Amigos Continuing Education Services Manager. “Amigos is pleased to offer an event that librarians all over the country can enjoy. Many of our speakers are well-known in the field and will present topics of current interest to library managers and reference librarians.”

Keynote speaker, Brenda Dervin <http://referenceonline.amigos.org/node/1> , Ph.D., will kick off the conference with her talk “The Greatest Information Need: Information Mediation.” Dervin’s talk will focus on the “greatest” information need — what she’s learned about it from 35 years of researching information needs of myriad population groups — expert and lay, rich and poor, virtually every cultural group, in virtually every context.

For more information and to sign up for the conference, visit http://referenceonline.amigos.org/. Early bird registration runs through August 17.

About Amigos Library Services – For more than 35 years, Amigos Library Services has helped its members obtain affordable services and share library resources and knowledge.

Mobile Education Webinars

via DIG_REF

[1] Mobile Learning Fundamentals: Innovation Showcase and Real-World Examples /  Presented by A.J. Ripin  / With Special Guest > Dr. David Metcalf

The way that we live, work, play, and learn is being impacted by the increasing mobility of our global society. As leaders, it is our responsibility to design for the needs of our changing audience. Learn the key trends and technologies that are fast emerging to meet the challenges and changes of today and tomorrow. Come hear this conversation as we explore advanced concepts like mobile performance support, compliance, games and simulations, location awareness, transcoding, mobile social networking and collaboration. Learn firsthand how world leaders from industry, academia, military and organizations like Google, Microsoft, Tyco International, Tufts University and others are delivering value through Mobile Learning content.

[2] Mind Over Technology – The Value Of Content Design In Mobile Education / Presented by Supra Manohar /  EVP Emantras

The discussion of mobility in education has primarily focused on technology and devices. It is critical to understand that the maturation of the market is driving the need for understanding content design and why it is probably one of the most critical aspects of any mobile learning initiative. Understanding how we learn in specific environments is critical to learning design. Using online content without pedagogical modifications within mobile environments probably does not work. The primary thrust of mobile education must be the design of the content and utilization of technology to deliver this content. This presentation will explore learning design for mobile environments and critical factors that need to be considered for a successful initiative (relative to content).
